SOUTH-TEC 2013: Vertical Turning

The new VL 2 single-spindle vertical pick-up lathe is designed for the machining of small (max diam of 100 mm; max length of 150 mm) chucked components. The pick-up spindle picks up raw parts from an integral conveyor belt (which accommodates up to 24 workpieces) and later returns the finish machined component to it. The 12-station tool turret features short indexing times. For drilling and milling operations, it can also be equipped with driven tools in all 12 stations. The work spindle is mounted on a compound slide that moves in X and Z; the VL 2 can also be equipped with an optional Y-axis inside the turret.
